Russian champion tries Crocs, commits to racing a marathon in them
Nikolay Chavkin in the video below did 3x1000,
first two in Adidas carbon-fiber models, the last one in Crocs. Surprised by the result (2:52, 2:52, 2:50) with
the fastest interval done in Crocs, he committed to racing a marathon in Crocs if the video gets 42K likes and
195 comments (for 42 km 195 m, the marathon distance). Nikolay's current marathon PR is 2:14:00. The video
was created by a Russian sporting goods store chain. Their moto is
"more sports - brighter life", which we think is wonderful, and also deserves a Like. If you want to see a fast marathon in Crocs, go to the video and click the Like button. And make sure to share it with your friends.
I think everything is conspiring against me to run the Big Bear Marathon. My leg just won't heal up since Lotoja (something weird in the back of my knee) and now I came home from Panama with a terrible cold. It will be a miracle if I'm able to run the marathon but I'm still trying. Even with the cold I tried to run on the TM this morning but the leg thing said no so I walked for a mile and a half and jumped rope for 20 minutes.
